Kevin Cheng Roots for Catherine Tsang in TVB Executive Battle
Hong Kong tabloids reported earlier that TVB executives Catherine Tsang (曾勵珍) and Sandy Yue (余詠珊) have been wrestling in a political battle over the recent World Cup broadcast. Sandy attempted to pull artistes who are currently filming dramas to appear in TVB’s upcoming World Cup special carnival show, a variety program designed to create further hype for the soccer event. Catherine and Sandy have apparently be in heated arguments over the assignment of artistes.
Catherine and Sandy had their own camp of artistes who supported their initiatives. Charmaine Sheh (佘诗曼), Moses Chan (陳豪), Raymond Lam (林峯), Myolie Wu (胡杏兒), and Priscilla Wong (黃翠如) were in Catherine’s camp, whereas Grace Chan (陳凱琳), Sisley Choi (蔡思貝), Lee Yee Man (李綺雯), and Kayi Cheung (張嘉兒) supported Sandy, who received the most backing from artistes involved in variety programming.
Kevin Cheng and Ruco Chan Comment on TVB Management Rivalry
Yesterday, Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) and Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) filmed an intense crossfire scene for Eye in the Sky <天眼> in Yuen Long’s automobile junkyard. Commenting on Catherine versus Sandy’s reported rivalry, Kevin hinted that he supported Catherine by dismissing chances of participating in the variety show. He expressed, “I film dramas and lack speaking talent. I’m not suited to be in variety programs, so I can only fully devote myself to dramas.”
On the other hand, Ruco admitted he was busy filming every day and never received notice to take part in any shows. However, he will try his best to find time and attend if needed. “TVB spent a large sum of money to purchase the live broadcasting rights for the World Cup, and everyone is just cooperating to support the company,” he said.
Although Ruco did not rule out the possibility of joining the variety show, he expressed completing the drama is still top priority. Ruco added, “There were times in the past when my film schedule clashed with other work. I’ll have to consider the situation, because filming a drama involves a lot of people.”
